Dear athletes,

We can feel the energy and motivation on the eve of this great athletic and friendly competition. I am sure you will show us great achievements.

Montréal is the city of sports par excellence. We are proud to offer the support, infrastructure and conditions necessary for young athletes to flourish and for the Jeux de Montréal to continue to play its crucial role in the development of our youth and sport in our community.

I want to warmly thank the parents, the volunteers and the organizers of these 46th Jeux de Montréal for their support for the well-being of the athletes. Thanks to you, many thousands of young people will enjoy memorable and enriching experiences in high-level sports facilities.

I wish all the participants a great time.
